Summer Programs 2022

Registration is now open! 

Week-long summer classes at the Parrish Art Museum are a great way for any child to learn about art and become immersed in creating their own works of art. This summer we are proud to offer a variety of full- and half-day programs for creators ages 3 to 12. Young artists will experience the Parrish Art Museum with visits to the current exhibitions, explore and play in the outdoor meadow, and learn from visiting artists.

Please review our offerings below. Each program is sold by the week. Please note, not all programs run every week. See schedule below; scroll down for detailed descriptions of each program.

Waitlists for full weeks are available on the registration portal.
